Juventus coach Claudio Ranieri says he has no doubts over midfielder Tiago.

The summer signing from Olympique Lyon has struggled for form since arriving in Turin, but Ranieri says: "He is paying for a preseason that he was not used to going through, but we are convinced that he'll have a great season and success with Juve.

"I am happy to wait for him. But he could even come good tomorrow (today against Udinese)."
